Our Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) for Container Transport

Production companies in industry are facing many challenges such as a shortage of qualified personnel, constantly changing environmental and market situations and fluctuations in performance. Change is the only constant. The challenges for logistics are also growing – existing systems need to be adapted faster than ever. With the Open Shuttles – our autonomous mobile robots (AMR) for container transport – you can master these challenges, reduce costs and increase efficiency at the same time.

Our Open Shuttles allow you to jumpstart your automation endeavors, helping you overcome the following challenges:

  • Seasonal peaks and fluctuations in performance
  • Ever-changing processes and the required adaptions in your warehouse and production facility
  • Handling different load carriers
  • Lack of space and high levels of traffic inside the warehouse

Open Shuttles + intelligent software
= the perfect solution for production machine supply at Digmesa

When the locations of the subsidiaries Digmesa Polyform and Digmesa AG were combined, the production processes had to be restructured and production moved to a new hall. As part of this relocation project, they wanted to automate the transport processes supplying the assembly machines. An Open Shuttle system was installed and implemented within just four months. The autonomous mobile robot now brings empty containers to the injection molding machines and transports the finished pieces to a flow rack, which serves as a buffer area. The robot automatically transfers the full container to the flow rack according to the first-in first-out principle. The containers are equipped with an RFID tag, ensuring continuous traceability of the goods.

The flexibility that we gain by using this system is incredibly valuable. We didn’t have to install anything for the Open Shuttle in production. All it needs is the general travel paths and nothing else.
